Ski Lifts in Hintertux

Hintertux compact ski area is served by 19 lifts, with a mix of newer gondolas and chairlifts, and older T-bars. Skiers also have the option of the Zillertal Superskipass which provides access to a total of 489km of pistes across a much wider area.

Hintertux Ski Lifts

The Hintertux ski area is served by 19 ski lifts, which are a mix of shorter t-bars at the top of the mountain, a handful of chairlifts and cable cars, and the Gletscherbus series of gondolas which ferry skiers from the village to the highest accessible point, the Gefrorene Wand.

Gletcherbus 1 is the main access lift from the village to the central Sommerberg area, although it is supplemented by the 8-person Sommerberg cable car. The quickest route to the top of the mountain from the Sommerberg is taking the Gletscherbus 2 and 3 gondolas. From there skiers can access runs on the glacier, and can drop down behind the Gefrorene Wand, taking the Schlegeis chairlift back to the summit. Most lifts within this top section are t-bars which may put off some skiers and snowboarders, although they are fairly short and relatively easy to handle with few steep sections.

On the other side of the mountain, under the Grosser Kaserer, one of the oldest chairlifts in the resort, the 2-person chair Larmstange provides access to Kaserer 1 and 2 t-bars. [The resort plans to replace the older Kaserer 2 t-bar with a new 6-person chairlift in 2015 which will be a welcome improvement.]

The Ramsmoos t-bar from Sommerberg, and a small Babylift in the centre of the village serve novices and children just starting out.

Hintertux Ski Passes

For most visitors there is only really one lift pass option in Hintertux – the Zillertaler Superskipass, which covers the entire Zillertal valley, a total of 489km of pistes, taking in the Hintertux/ Mayrhofen area as well as Hippach, Zell, Gerlos and the Fugen and Kaltenbach areas. Those with a car can easily take full advantage of this extensive area – those without may find it a trek to get from Hintertux to the resorts past Mayrhofen.

Lift pass prices include discounts for teenagers and children and the option of electing a certain number of days to ski, for example, 4 days in 6 or 10 days in 14, with an appropriate discount. 

Daily passes are available for the smaller Ski and Gletscherwelt 3000 area covering the Hintertux and Mayrhofen ski areas. Various options are available depending on start times.
